May Holidays for Chamber Social Media


One of the easiest ways to fluff up your social media calendar is to post on holidays. You can find specific holidays to promote a chamber member (like promoting a seafood restaurant on National Shrimp Day, post a fun picture of your staff celebrating, or sharing a resource to help others learn about the issue. I also like to track job-related holidays as a reminder to reach out or recognize specific members.

Here’s some May Holidays that could be a good fit for your chamber social media calendar or for recognizing your members:
